Stupid people of the week

| April 30, 2022

This will be a heavy week. Lots of stupid going around lately.

Animal rights activists target the Minnesota Timberwolves

There have been three instances of protesters showing up at Timberwolves games and doing stupid stuff. I guess they’re mad at one of the team’s owners (who has sold the team but still controls it for a time). They’re outraged that his farm is mass killing chickens, which I think is due to bird flu.

Tennessee woman who ran out of gas had 229 pounds of marijuana in SUV abandoned on bridge: police

A Tennessee woman forced to abandon her vehicle after running out of gas on a Memphis bridge was arrested and charged for felony possession after law enforcement inspected her abandoned SUV.

The Memphis Police Department on Monday announced the arrest of 54-year-old Catherine Mardesich, who is charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, marijuana. Crump Station officers were dispatched at approximately 3:30 p.m. Sunday to meet Arkansas State Police near Memphis’ Metal Museum, near the bridge connecting Memphis, Tennessee, to the Arkansas side across the Mississippi River.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation and Arkansas State Police had responded to the I55 bridge southbound to reports about an unoccupied Chevrolet Suburban abandoned in a lane of traffic. The agencies moved the vehicle to 374 Metal Museum Drive to complete the crash report and tow the car. That’s when Mardesich, who was the driver, returned to the vehicle and explained she had run out of gas.

Law enforcement informed her that the vehicle was to be inventoried and towed, but Mardesich advised that officers could not go inside the car, according to Memphis police.

As officers approached the vehicle, they smelled raw marijuana and Mardesich was detained.

When the vehicle was searched, 229 pounds of marijuana were in multiple boxes and a duffel bag, police said. A large sum of money was also found inside the vehicle.

Because the vehicle was in Memphis at the time of the discovery, Mardesich was transported to Jail East in Shelby County, Tennessee.

A distraught woman running through Marco Island, screaming that someone had broken into her house and was in her pool, led deputies to the discovery of narcotics.

As deputies checked the home for possible intruders, they found several suspected narcotics, as well as a shotgun.

The resident, 39-year-old Marisol Perez, appeared to be under the influence of narcotics and displayed signs of excited delirium, according to a Marco Island Police Department press release.

Perez was then taken to the hospital.

After Marco Island police received search warrants for Perez’ home. They found large amounts of suspected marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and prescription drugs.

Additionally, they seized 15 weapons of various types, according to the release.

Man dies after setting himself on fire in front of the Supreme Court

The green lefties have claimed this one. Apparently this was some sort of protest against “climate change”. I wonder if the irony of turning yourself into a literal carbon footprint was lost on this fella?

A man has died after setting himself on fire in front of the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., on Friday night, Metropolitan Police said Saturday. The court said to CBS News in a statement Friday there were no other injuries, and there did not appear to be a public safety concern.

Police identified the man as 50-year-old Wynn Bruce, of Boulder, Colorado, and said he died of his injuries after being airlifted to a hospital following the incident. At approximately 6:30 p.m., he went on to the plaza in front of the court building and set himself on fire, the court said. The court did not offer any specifics on the person or what their motivation may have been.

Supreme Court Police, U.S. Capitol Police and the Metropolitan Police Department responded to the incident, the court said, and a medical helicopter airlifted the person to a local hospital.

“The area remains closed for further investigation, but this is not a public safety issue,” the court said.

The incident came on a chaotic day in Washington D.C., where earlier Friday, multiple people were shot on a busy street. The suspect died of a suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to officials.

New Baltimore Police Fiscal Chief Fired After PD Notices He’s A POI In Murder Case And On Gun Offender List

Baltimore’s corruption is astonishing.

The Baltimore police commissioner announced on Wednesday that the police department’s new chief of fiscal services had been fired because it turned out the executive was “a person of interest” in an ongoing murder investigation.

Dana Hayes, 37, was hired by the Baltimore Police Department (BPD) on April 11, WBAL reported.

Hayes was already listed on Baltimore’s Gun Offender Registry when he was hired, WBFF reported.

His name has been on the list that tracks city residents who have been convicted of at least one gun charge since 2019, WJZ reported.

Hayes was arrested on multiple gun charges in 2018.

The homicide case in which Hayes is a person of interest dates back to 2020, WBAL reported.

“We can confirm that this person who was chosen and hired by the Baltimore Police Department has been terminated as of actually, technically, yesterday [and] was interviewed today and is a person of interest in a homicide investigation,” BPD Commissioner Michael Harrison said.

Commissioner Harrison said that background check had been conducted prior to hiring Hayes but that it had obviously failed, WJZ reported.

“We’re correcting that as we speak,” the police commissioner told reporters.

He said Hayes is not a suspect, nor was there a warrant for the former department executive’s arrest.

Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott’s office issued a statement and said the mayor had called for a review of BPD’s hiring processes, WJZ reported.

“Upon learning of a systems failure in the civilian hiring process at the Baltimore Police Department yesterday, Mayor Scott has directed Baltimore City Chief Human Capital Officer, Quinton Herbert, to perform a comprehensive review of BPD’s civilian hiring practices and submit recommendations to improve their policies and procedures,” the statement read. “Mayor Scott is committed to reforming HR practices throughout the City to ensure we hire only eligible and qualified candidates to fill these critical positions in city government.”

Maybe Baltimore P D aught to look a little deeper into who is currently on their payroll.
Tennessee woman must not like to get her hands dirty and all smelling of gas.

President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH Neande

I’d have let the stoopid protestor glue herself to the court floor, then have security forcibly remove her, even if it meant leaving skin on the floor and causing pain to herself. Boo hoo!
As for the one that chained itself to the stanchion, and the one that ran out on the floor…….well, players need to let off steam and frustration somehow. And two protestors, one fixed, and one mobile, make great targets. Body slams, ball bounces…….
The problem with these protesters is that they’ve gotten away with their shenanigans with little to no hurt, harm, or punishment. Way past time to change that. Put ’em in the hospital……repeatedly.
Oh, and make the players immune from prosecution, criminal and civil. After all, the players didn’t run through the seats attacking the protesters. The protesters entered the players place of employment and attacked them. The players were just defending themselves against the protesters.


[…] This ain’t Hell… covers stupid people of the week […]


Man dies after setting himself on fire in front of the Supreme CourtI thought the federal government made it a felony for a protest organization to knowingly let a member self-immolate. Any wacko who does that has to have been planning it and must have had help.
The Vietnam war protestors who set themselves on fire had no idea that the monk they were emulating was not protesting the war. He and his fellow clergy had done so to protest the oppression of the Buddhist majority by the Catholic minority. They were actually staunch anti-communists who supported the war, knowing they’d be massacred by the atheist communists if South Vietnam fell.
I once met a Vietnamese monk who told me that the United States is the only place in the world where their schools of Buddhism can be found. The monks who couldn’t escape were sent to work camps to die.
